I haven’t written a book post in awhile. Here are a few of the books we’ve been reading lately:
Nora and the Great Bear: Norah LOVES this book. Young girl trying to keep up with the adults. She ends up discovering better ways of living (sum-up: you catch more bears with honey than guns…).
A Cat in a Kayak: A book I bought for Scott. I don’t think he read it. But Norah likes it. About a man who lives on an island and transports via kayak an assortment of animals to join him.
The Gas we Pass: Seriously, I learned some scientific things from this book. I mean, how many children’s books teach that a healthy person releases about 2 cups of gas each day? And contains such scientific lines as “These gases are made when leftover food is broken down by bacteria, rots and becomes poop.”
She is Born: I’ve been reading this book to Norah since, well, she was born. And I still cannot read it without crying. Still. If you are searching for the perfect gift for a new mother of a daughter, you cannot go wrong with this book.
The Runaway Pumpkin: Because it is October! Hoorah!
You can also take a look at the books we don’t yet own on Norah’s wishlist. You might even find some gift ideas for a toddler in your circle.
